Leonieke Scheuble: June 2019 Tour

Read "Leonieke Scheuble: June 2019 Tour" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Located right in front of a train station, the South Orange Gazebo is an uncommonly boisterous location for a jazz concert. Whistles blowing, brakes screeching, trains arrive and depart every ten minutes or so. Automobiles access parking lots via a rotary about fifteen feet away. Their horns and sound systems blare as drivers compete for space. The South Orange Fire Department building stands across the street from the gazebo. On a warm evening in late June, the blast of a ...

Read "Three Days At The Barber Shop, Part 3" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


Rehearsal | Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 When I walk into the live room, a little early, on Day 3, Gillespie has already swapped out the piano for a Hammond B-3 organ and Leslie speaker. Three boom mics are positioned in the area closest to the window to the control room. Each one looms over a music stand.

The balance between the three instruments, as well as the strength of the individual performances, is striking. Nick and ...

The immediate neighborhood is a patchwork of bungalows, upscale homes, newly constructed townhouses, small businesses and restaurants.

Leonieke Scheuble's Journey Into The Art Of Jazz

Read "Leonieke Scheuble's Journey Into The Art Of Jazz" reviewed by David A. Orthmann


The setting is a living room in a suburban northern New Jersey home. For the most part, it's filled with things not necessarily available at the furniture outlets that line the local highways. An upright piano takes up most of the wall adjacent to the front door. A harpsichord spans the area between the entrances to the kitchen and the dining room. A comfortable sofa is placed between a Hammond B-3 organ and a Leslie speaker. It is clearly a ...
